The site, a gravel mound known as Killeen Cormac (Cell Ingen Cormaic/Cell Fhine Cormaic?) is classified as a ‘Burial Ground’, but may be regarded as an important early ecclesiastical site. A recent geophysical survey of the site (Greene 2013, 26-47) shows traces of a trivallate enclosure of which the burial ground is just the nucleus of a much more extensive early Christian foundation. Seven ogham stones were originally found at this site, at least one of which was broken up and re-used in the construction of a surrounding wall in the late 19th century (Macalister 1945, 26). One of the ogham stones, currently on display in the National Museum of Ireland, is a bilingual stone (rare in Ireland) with both an ogham inscription and one in Latin (CIIC. 19 Colbinstown I).

Text: ‘The scores are chisel-cut, and are in good condition except for wear and some fractures. The beginning is lost…The letters before the present beginning must have been vowels and B consonants, for the H-surface is intact and shows no marking. The stone reads up to the dexter edge as far as the C: after that it turns on to the top. A fracture at the corner has carried off the OI: only A, I, of the second name remain’ ‘ (Macalister 1945, 26-7). While the remains of a few vowel notches are possible on the top of the stone, these are far from clear. Also, although there is little doubt about the reading of MUC[OI], only partial scores survive for the C because of the fracture here at the top of the stone.

Transliteration: [ … ]EGNI KOI MAQI ṂUC̣[/OI] Ạ[ … ]Ị[ … ]

Translation: ‘… here, son of the descendant of …’

Ogham in 3D (https://ogham.celt.dias.ie/) is a project to research and digitise ogham inscriptions/stones and make 3d models of the stones freely available online. Their Sketchfab page contains examples of experimental/learning models created using photogrammetry. More models and descriptions of ogham stones, including the seven stones of Killeen Cormac, are available from their website ogham.celt.dias.ie.
